Challenges to President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private employers will be consolidated in the U.S. 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, a panel dominated by judges appointed by Republicans.

They argue the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration does not have the authority to impose the mandate.
